Darlene Clark Hine

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter focuses on Darlene Clark Hine and her induction as a fellow into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) on October 6, 2006. This came as a pleasant surprise for Hine, as she had never entertained any thoughts of receiving such a distinction. To be named a fellow in the AAAS represented, along with Hine's earlier presidential tenures of the Organization of American Historians and the Southern Historical Association, the academy's recognition and acceptance of black women's history as an integral and legitimate area of study essential to a fuller understanding of American and African American history. Compounding her amazement, Hine heard from University of South Carolina historian Wanda Hendricks the wonderful news that the Organization of American Historians had approved the establishment of the Darlene Clark Hine Prize for the best book in African American women's history and gender.

Keywords:   Darlene Clark Hine, AAAS, presidential tenures, American Historians, Southern Historical Association, black women's history, African American history
